Skolopad, who is a professional nurse, told TshisaLIVE that she is indeed returned to work for the first time but she’s working at different department now.

“I am working in a new department now. My psychologist diagnosed me with severe depression and this new environment is really helping. I have no colleagues. I am happy with how everything has turned out so far. I am still under the same boss but it is okay because at least I am back at work,” she said.

The star was rushed to hospital following a heated argument with a colleague at work, which the star claimed it led her to take an overdose of anti-anxiety pills.

The 34-year-old singer/dancer told the publication that she sent daughter to go live live with her mom shortly after the overdose and said her family did not know the full details of her meltdown. 

“She is okay. She doesn’t really know what happened because she doesn’t have her phone. I saw her on her birthday but I haven’t seen her since.”

“Therapy helped me. I now know how to deal with situations that may come. I know I have to stand my ground and face it head on,” – Skolopad said.
